Panasonic S1 4K 10bit video mode to be present at launch with Hybrid LOG Gamma

Comment on the forum

Overlooked in the first articles about this camera is the 4K H.265 mode of the Panasonic S1. Similar to the Fuji X-T3, this will allow 10bit internal recording in HEVC with launch firmware version 1.0 – no need to wait for the paid 10bit update.

3840 x 2160 is available in 10bit at 24p, 25p and 30p with no crop – it is full frame.

The later paid update is for a higher bitrate 10bit 4:2:2 mode and V-LOG, but in the meantime 10bit H.265 provides the silky smooth colour of 10bit with HDR and much smaller file sizes.

Samsung NX1 users are in for a treat with the latest release of Adobe Premiere CC. The NLE has been updated with hardware accelerated 4K H.265 (HVEC) support. This means NX1 users no longer have to transcode clips to an editable format like ProRes.

I have just tried out H.265 support in Premiere, so a brief word on this now…
